Welcome to my web page! My colleagues call me Abdou, and my last name is pronounced @and_joy_. I am currently an Assistant Professor of Economics at New York University, Leonard N. Stern School of Business, and a Research Affiliate at the Centre for Economic Policy Research.
My research focuses on the impact of incentives in macroeconomic environments. I investigate issues related to public finance, labor economics, and the emerging areas of blockchains and decentralized finance. To tackle these topics, I use several tools, from mechanism design, contract theory, and optimal control. Click here for more information and to read my full research papers.
I completed my undergraduate studies at École Polytechnique in Paris. I then earned my Ph.D. in Economics from Northwestern University in 2018, where I was advised by Professors Pavan, Lorenzoni, and De Nardi. After that, I spent a year as a postdoc at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago from 2018 to 2019.
